What are Dental Implants?

Missing teeth are a great problem for most of the patients. They cannot cherish their favorite food because of the limitations; they often feel inconvenience when chewing because of the missing tooth or even feel embarrassment when the missing tooth is visible. There are situations where a person loses his teeth in accident or their teeth are removed by the dentist in order to save the nearby teeth from getting damaged. In such cases, the person feels a void in their mouth, a missing tooth is a great discomfort. A dental implant is a restorative and cosmetic dentistry innovation in which a permanent tooth or a set of teeth are planted instead of missing tooth/teeth. A dental implant is same as a natural tooth and it lasts for more than one or two decades without any maintenance depending upon the quality of the implant.

    

How Do Dental Implants Work? When a tooth is removed there is a vacant space between the nearby teeth. To fill in the gap between the teeth a dental implant is placed between them. Dental Implant is a two-step process. In the first step an Implant Surgery is performed during which a titanium metal post or screw is placed replacing the root of the removed tooth. When the screw is firmly held by the jaw, a crown or a bridge is placed using the post as a foundation. A high quality dental implant lasts at least two decades without any troubles in most of the cases.
